a retired doctor in new york city and i want to ask a very personal question and i hope he won't mind. in your writing or subsequent have people come up to you and said i've changed my life because of when you have rhode? i think most people that write or do things, whatever it is, they want to know if they had an impact on someone's life. >> i can't think of an instance in which somebody has said quite that to me. sometimes a book resonates with a person very strongly because of something they are going through in their personal life, so if they're going through a tragedy and the book somehow helps them to deal with that, then they will write to me and tell me about this and say thank you for your book because it helped me through this. i'm not thinking about that when i'm writing the book and i am never quite sure. but i can't remember anybody saying that i changed their lives. i would be very flattered by that but why did you ask that question? you must have a reason for that. >> whether they are raising children or teaching whether they are a position were going to africa they fee

to read. in the mid '50s, live in the outer boroughs of new york city, in my case the bronx, was comfortable but provincial. and my curiosity extended far beyond the bounds of my home and school. i wanted to know more about people in other places. what was happening in the world now, what had happened in the past, and quite simply how i came to be. books were my passports, and i consumed them voraciously. but i came to writing later than most. in my late '30s after having raised my three children. my generation, those of us born during and after world war ii, numbered in the millions. and we were asking questions that demanded to be answered. we had come of age in the heat of the escalating war in vietnam. and we didn't know why our brothers were fighting so far away for a cause that was so difficult to understand. and the role of women in society was changing rapidly. my friends, educator with traditional values but a deep sense of personal ambition, wanted to know how to be true to ourselves, yet remain committed to our husbands and our children. as a young mother i had st

? a bunch of crazy folks locked in glass conference room in new york city. we launched brand new consumer products every single week every tuesday at 12:00 and thursdays at 12:00 regardless what's going on in the world. that's going increase to about ten products per week by the end of the year. the reason i started the company, i was an inventers myself, i realized making physical product is really hard. you need have there's some sort of list of tons of different disciplines from design to engineering and manufacturing and retail merchandising. so many things need come together to push one brand new product in the to the real world. what it results is in a world where invention is inassessable. now, we strive to make it assessable we do it by leveraging three things. three things that any company can activate, employ, and put forth to bring all the technology innovation and all the passion that bilged the state building in one year and 45 days in to everything around you. technology, community, and experts. it's the coming together of all three of these things that makes it possible for
was a new york city police detective for a long time, and he said if you robbed one bank, you'd probably get away with it. the guys that get caught are those who rob five banks, 15 banks, 20 banks. along the way, they make errors. it's in a similar way. if you get a broad understanding across a large data set, and you look at a volume of information or intelligence, you're able to really start to attribute what's happening, and when we talk about intelligence sharing, that's absolutely what occurs in that space. >> we had a second comment, go ahead. >> caller: okay. i had my second comment for the previous caller. on energy and gasoline and things like that. since the 80s, we had the technology to run water through our engines. stanley meyer perfected that in the 80ing. i don't know what happened to that. he had patents on it and provedf his information, even most of the technology on it, and, also, we have the processer by paul and the seg generator that was developedded by a man from europe. he's still alive. his name is john thill. >> host: we'll let you go, back to the topic of cybercrim

profile. people in the new york city and tristate area probably aren't too eager to see how high the ocean levels may come in the years to come. over time weather events become our climate. a two-part question. are you convinced that climate change and the direction of global warming is real, and do you believe it's been caused by human activity? if so, what should the federal role be in reversing it? buerkle: well, i've said and i'm on record as saying that climate change is real, but the question is, and i don't believe it's been decided by science, as to what man's role is in creating climate change. so i think the reasonable approach is to take the interests into account rather than taking this radical all we worry about is the climate and the environment as dan did with cap and trade and, rather, look and balance all the interests. and that's not what's being done right now. you know, when you have 50 former nasa scientists criticizing nasa and saying that this climate change and whether man is causing it or not is still in question and not to take such a radical role, i think we all
change than your opponent. tomorrow, you're going up in new york city where you're going to, i soon, see people who are still suffering the effects of hurricane cindy, which many people say is further evidence of how a warming globe is changing our weather. what specifically do you plan to do in his second term to tackle the issue of climate change? and do you think the political will exist in washington to pass legislation that could include some kind of attacks on our been -- some kind of tax on carbon? >> decant attribute any particular weather event to climate change. what we do know is the temperature around the globe is increasing. faster than was predicted even 10 years ago. we do know that the arctic ice cap is melting, faster than was rejected even five years ago. and we do know that there has been extraordinarily, there have been an extraordinarily large number of severe weather events here in north america, but also around the globe. and i'm a firm believer that climate change is real, that it is impacted by human behavior, and carbon emissions. and as a consequence i think we
of philadelphia did but the suburbs also wideout romney. new york, philadelphia, d.c., los angeles and san francisco's the birds that are all very democratic. denver las vegas and phoenix and the dallas houston san antonio atlanta charlotte and north carolina were very republican so i think calling suburbs analyzing pricing suburbs doesn't work. you have to look at each individual suburb word each region of the country and finally, number six, we have to rethink the way we spend money on politics. this was a 6 billion-dollar election-year with status quo results. i think the biggest success when it comes to money and politics and i'm not talking about the message but the macro-- karl rove separated billionaires from billions of their dollars to what effect? i mean it may be more effective way to pay voters directly. there is probably more return for your investment and i would conclude by saying that probably the supreme court of the united states, the second most important institution in the united states in aiding the economic recovery, because next to the fed they have done more to pump
that still want to come here. immigration is a big issue in this campaign, and i am in new york which has an enormous immigrant population, and i can't even imagine what the city would be like without it in terms of the vibrancy and the excitement that we feel when we walk the streets of new york. so, you know, we have a long history of finding our way through these kinds of challenges and problems. and i believe that as long as we -- as long as we stick to our basic principles, and i do think we need to make some progress here in washington might do think that the government has reached a level of this functionality that is high even by government standards. >> we love numbers. >> some incredible amount of lightning strikes when the s. con. res. 70 leaves in another few weeks it will have passed fewer than half as many of the laws as any other congress in modern history. now you may say -- some people would say that is great. but i don't think so. i think we have a lot of problems and conagra's is paid to solve them and so i do think washington has improved its success rate but beyond th
areas of all new york city. i was on the ground from the moment the storm started. the amount of devastation that i saw was unimaginable. 24 staten islanders lost their lives. families lost everything. homes were literally torn off their foundations. some collapsed. large boats, yachts were scattered deepened the neighborhoods piled up on two peoples homes. more than 100,000 were without power for weeks. people slept in a cold, damp home, and for his of to move to a shelter because we were afraid of losing. the streets were dark. they were littered with what was once their home and their personal belongings. and as a community and as a city, we came together and we cleaned up the surface rather quickly. but there are still much deeper and continuing challenges that remain. families are still in shelters. the need for housing is one of our top priorities. others are struggling with fema and sba to receive adequate assistance. the our health concerns, fuel spilled into people's yards and homes. raw sewage backed up and filled peoples homes to this evening. homeowners are uncerta
